Good morning Pirates,
As we BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND, we wanted to let you know the Pickett’s Mill Foundation “Surrender the Booty” fundraiser is heading into its last week and will end on September 20th. Parents and students, you all have done a great job so far with our fundraiser. As of this morning we had collected over $17,000. Thanks to all of our students and parents for their continued support of our Pickett’s Mill Foundation through this fundraiser.
We promised our students that when our “Surrender the Booty” donations reached $15,000 they would get to watch our administrators battle it out in Ninja Sumo suits. We hit that $15,000 goal this week so that epic battle occurred during our 7 Habits Pep Rally. We hope they all had a great time watching us do battle in the gym this morning.
Our overall goal for “Surrender the Booty” is $25,000. When we reach that goal, watch as your principal, Dr. Morrell is turned into a principal sundae on a Monday, all while the students get to eat ice cream! Any student that donates over $200 will be invited to view a movie at the NCG theaters with Dr. Morrell & Mrs. Gurski on October 19th. We always try to THINK WIN-WIN, so we are happy to say that 100% of the funds from this fundraiser support Pickett’s Mill by providing educational and building enhancements not covered by Cobb County School District.
We will have practice this week on 9/17 and 9/19. We are expecting a break in the heat later this week. We hope to start some of our relay races when that happens. Please remember to wear proper footwear and bring a water bottle.
